    Hi 10Jam01

    I would say, along with class notes, use your revision guide to summaries your notes into small bite size chunks (flash cards, mind maps etc.) Posters are good for visual subjects such as organic synthesis which you can put on your bedroom wall.

    Exam question practice is very important, so print out all the past papers you can get your hands on and practice. Check out some of these revision websites. There is my own Science Skool (check my signature), Chem guide (which is awesome and so complete) as well as many others!

    Best of luck with your revision

    Hi djmans

    I suggest to my own students to do the test in test conditions. Then mark your answers using the markscheme and correct all wrong answers in a different colour pens in as much detail as you can. You can then redo the paper at a later date and see if you are making the same mistakes, working on the questions you seem to keep getting incorrect.

    I would NOT just do the paper using the markscheme because this will give you a false confidence that you know the answers (everyone finds the exams easy with the answers in front of you!)

    Hope that helps
